PART A - I have followed the instructions in Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 872769.  Still stuck.  From my workstation in the Windows Firewall setting window the following messaages are displayed - For your security, some settings are controlled by Group Policy and Windows Firewall is using your domain settings.  Where do i change the group policy settigns and what do i change them to so the option to turn the firewall off is made available?

PART B - Ultimatly i'm trying allow iTunes full access to pull-down CD information that I'm loading into my library.  Again, in the Windows Firewall setting window when i go to the Exceptions tab i see iTunes listed but it indicates that ther is no Group Policy.  Again, where do i cahnge the policy and what do i cahnge it to?

Thanks - Don

Take a look at MS article about managing SP2 features (including firewall) with Group Policy:
